"Likely many, I was initially drawn to Hobart and William Smith because of its physical beauty. Soon after my acceptance, however, I developed more meaningful connections to the Colleges. I felt that the size of the school, as well as its commitment to a true liberal arts education, afforded me great opportunity. I knew I would be able to pursue a wide variety of interests while simultaneously forming critical relationships with peers, professors, and other mentors. I trusted that I would not have to compromise important elements of my identity in pursuit of academic success. Thankfully, these intuitions turned out to be true; in the short amount of time I have been here, I have been granted immense opportunity and support in pursuit of all my ambitions. This is how I know HWS was the right choice."
